    Noodles: Those pictures are all pretty much worthless for judging fit. You need:

    Robo-pose
    Jacket buttoned
    Standing at ease (no chest puffing, etc.)
    Full-length shot taken from a decent distance and at about chest height to avoid lens distortion

    I like SB peak suits, but prefer them with a single button.

    Sir,

    I was just trying to capture the RED tie and the ridiculously absurd looking belt buckle to go with my black trousers. I wasn't WAYWRN'n. If I was I would have posted a pic in WAYWRN thread.

    He can also join the line and wait for the Eidos Napoli Liverano cut NMWA will be carrying in the fall. Great alternative to Liverano and Bntailor IMHO.

    Is the 40R Zegna Milano fit? In that case I think it fits awfully and you should sell it to me.

    Unfortunately, that's just a poor man's RLBL.

    I might as well just buy this since patient is my best suit.

    Go for it, as long as it's work appropriate.

    Gorgeous suit, though not exactly CBD. Unless you're the CEO... ;)

    I feel Noodles should put all his money in his wife's LV wallet for safe keeping until a new Formosa in his size. Doubtful anyone will support the idea of DB suits before you acquire the necessary SB suits.
